Is this forum's web open source?
June 05, 2017, 06:33:15 pm

This forum is a copy of bitcointalk.org, the forum that was created by Satoshi Nakamoto. It is autorized to copy the design of Bitcointalk.org to create a new forum as same as is legit to copy the code of the bitcoin to create any new currency? Can the actual moderators of Bitcointalk became angry for this? If I create a similar forum to talk about other topic, could I have any problem?

Thanks  ;)


EDIT: I just saw that the forum was created using this http:/ /www.simplemachines. org/ .
was difficult to create?

Hello nitrog14,

This forum is a copy of bitcointalk.org, the forum that was created by Satoshi Nakamoto.

This forum is based on the Core template of the Simple Machines Forum software, same as Bitcointalk is. So it is not exactly "a copy of Bitcointalk", in the sense that Simple Machines delivers two default templates and this is one of them. When NxtForum was started, and since the community in general was used to the Bitcointalk interface, it was decided to use the SMF Core theme as well.

And Satoshi Nakamoto has little to do with Simple Machines Forum as far as I know :)

The SMF Core theme is free and open source.

Besides the basic Core templates, both NxtForum and Bitcointalk have their own particular modules and customizations which provide different features and tools.

I think Simple Machines Forum is relatively simple to install, but of course it depends on your level of expertise and where you would want to install it (on your own cloud server, a webhosting service, etc). The SMF community has a lot of documentation and good user support, you can learn there all you need.

Moved this topic to the Meta Forum section.
